Police have not filed charges in a deadly accident in far Northeast El Paso yesterday.

The wreck happened on U.S. 54 and Stan Roberts near the New Mexico state line.  Police said 34-year-old Imelda Diaz, of El Paso, died when a U.S. Army truck crashed into her passenger van.

Police tell Newschannel 9 Diaz was a prison guard driving the van headed to the Otero County Prison with 6 prisoners onboard.

Diaz and the passengers were rushed to area hospitals.  The passengers had minor injuries.

El Paso Police said the van had the right of way when the military truck collided with it.  There were four soldiers in the truck.  They weren't hurt.

I think that the healine should read Charges are being investigated or are pending instead of No Charges Filed in Deadly Crash. The driver of the military vehicle failed to yield the right of way so how can chrges not be pending?

Because no one wants to badmouth the Military. They bring way too much to the local economy to say anything harsh about. We must always cast them in the finest light regardless of what has happened. Or like in the case of the drunken soldier who crashed through two fences/gates at the El Paso International airport, struck a parked airplane, and then fled police, we cover the story up.
